    Ha! I sent him a note today already on that one.

    The plan is to do an all-flash FreeNAS appliance that has the ability to directly connect clients.

    We walked around Taipei for a bit last week. I think I am flying up to Vancouver to do the setup and shoot after HPE Discover.

    As an aside, after 75 minutes walking with Linus and just prior to that having lunch and going on a MRT adventure with Wendell, I ended up buying four video camera setups. Talk about an expensive day.

    @Patrick heck yes, we should meetup and shoot the shit (or have a drink ~ if you drink?)? I'll be at HPE Discover the week of the 17th too.

    @Patrick, might you consider @gea involved in this?

    That would be a dream team!
    He's such a wealth of ZFS tuning experience.

    I am looking forward to this also - especially since this is a scenario more catered to small groups (4 editors here) and not your typical enterprise measurement with T16/QD32.
    So ideally we have 4 threads (or maybe 8 or even 16 if they run a couple background jobs each), but certainly not massively parallelized.

    On this particular one, the hardware was set and I was told we are doing FreeNAS. Linus and I discussed doing more of these in the future.

    I told him I actually think Ceph is more interesting.

    Ceph is more interesting but you need more nodes.
    After your power review of the A2sdi-8c board (idle 15w) I was so tempted to go buy some for a physical ceph playpen.
    Don’t really need to do so as have a virtual play ground and use different storage for openstack where it’s implemented but still fun to play with.

    SSD’s are at least now a better price to be able to have fun with these things.
